Danladi Umar is No Longer Fit for Public Office

The viral video of the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Mr Danladi Umar, and his aides, assaulting a security guard, Mr. Clement Sagwak, at Banex Plaza, Abuja requires very little annotation. It illustrates an unambiguous example of lawlessness, arrogant disdain for public morality and the violation of rights and dignity of a private citizen. It reveals in unmistakable terms, the culture of impunity in our country. 

President Buhari’s Foreign Medical Trip: Symptom of a National Malady

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday 30th March 2021 flew to the United Kingdom, for what Presidential officials have described as a ‘routine medical check-up’.

International Women’s Day 2021

The Need to Advance the Education, Careers, and Leadership Potentials of Women in Nigeria

The theme for this year's International Women's Day - Women in Leadership: Achieving an Equal Future In A Covid-19 World, is a loud clarion call to citizens of every country to laud the wonderful efforts by women and girls in forging a more equitable future, as the stage is set for recovery from the Coronavirus pandemic. It is a recognition of the need for the holistic and effective participation of women across all strata of leadership and service, bearing in mind the current equity gaps that weigh heavily against them.

Bandits siege on Nigeria: Enough of the Empty Rhetoric!

This continued orgy of murderous abductions across Northern Nigeria is appalling. The kidnap of 317 girls in Jangebe, Talata Mafara Local Government Area of Zamfara State by terrorists on Friday February 26, 2021 came on the heels of the February 17th abduction of school children in Kagara, Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State. This has again put in sharp focus the deteriorating security situation in the country, and the discernible scandalous incapacitation of government and security agencies in tackling the issue of terrorism and banditry in Northern Nigeria.

Before Anarchy Reigns in Nigeria

The National Association of Seadogs, Pyrates Confraternity, notes with deep concern the recent escalation of farmers/herders clashes and related insecurity in Oyo and Ondo States together with the killings that occurred due to the clash between security agents and the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) backed Eastern Security Network in Okporo, Orlu Local Government Area of Imo State.

International Day of Education: Need for Increased Investment in Education

The National Association of Seadogs (Pyrates Confraternity) joins the rest of the world in marking the International Day of Education. This year's commemoration, only the third since a United Nations resolution created the anniversary in December 2018, comes amidst the second wave of a viral pandemic which has wreaked untold havoc on all facets of human existence, including education. 

Before the advent of the Coronavirus pandemic, global education was experiencing mixed fortunes in all ramifications - enrolment, quality, inclusivity, and equity. According to the United Nations, by this time last year, about 260 million children and youth were out of school, with over 600 million children and adolescents unable to read or solve basic mathematical problems.

Umalokun Massacre: An Unlawful Murder Among Many Past & Present that Blights the History of Nigerian Police

On December 27, 1983, men of the Nigeria Police Force in Ughelli, then in old Bendel State, shot six Nigerian youths dead in cold blood. The murdered Nigerian youths from different tertiary institutions, namely Kester Aghogho Sobotie, Joseph Uloho, Victor Oyailo, Anthony Teddy Omakor, Bernard Obi and Princely Otegho Otaye, were members of the National Association of Seadogs (Pyrates Confraternity).
